    Greetings all, I have a sawstop PCS, and purchased a Freud Premium Fusion thin kerf combo blade, with a kerf of 0.091". The sawstop riving knife is 2.3 mm, or 0.0906". The manual says to not use a blade thinner than 0.0925", but I didn't see that in time. For cross cuts, all is well and the...

    https://photos.app.goo.gl/7g2qrSHehBHXWvB99 We are planning on converting an old Airstream trailer into a sauna this summer. Airstreams have those tight concave ends with compound curves. Straight shiplap cedar boards can handle the basic curves up the walls and around the ceiling. But it's...

    I bought a few years ago a Jet JWTS10-10JF table saw, restored it (replaced belt), installed new switch etc. ... but I am missing the kerf splitter. Does anybody know where I could find such a part ? I am even thinking having one custom-made by a metal guy. I contacted Jet and wait for a...

    I have been unable to reach either Blackburn Tools or Bad Axe tools. So I am going to make my own kerning plane/saw. I think I can improve on the designs I have seem from others. How about: 1. Adjustable depth of cut via thumb screw 2. Adjustable angle of attack 3. Spring tensioned blade that...

    Hi all, Been a long time lurker and this is my first post. I'm hoping someone can shine some light on some questions I have. I'm looking to upgrade my table saw blade to maybe a WW2 (1/8 kerf) (open to other ones as well if folks have suggestions). I'm trying to figure out if the riving knife...

    The soundboard and rosette. Time, just now, doesn't allow many words to describe this process. It's my first attempt an an acoustic guitar. I hope I have taken enough photographs to tell the story. Other than the spruce soundboard, much of the instrument is made from bits and pieces from the...

    Picked Up and Old, Early Disston today. Is it too far gone? So I went to my local salvage/resale store today looking for anything cool they might have up in the tool section. After rummaging through all the junk I found a complete postwar Stanley #4 bench plane for $3.00, some halfway decent...

    I am hoping to start a project soon where I will be ripping tons of 1/8" strips on the table saw. I would like to have the thinnest kerf available to minimize waste. I will only be ripping from 3/4" or 1" thick boards, so it will cut easily. Any suggestions? Thanks! Mike

    What's an ideal thickness for the kerf of a dovetail marking knife? Also, is this shape of blade for dovetail marking preferable? I'm making two knives for the heck of it but one expressly for dovetails. The other knife will have this kind of blade, which I'm guessing isn't preferable for...

    I've got an old unisaw with three belts. It was sitting for a long time before I got it, and the belts are stretched so that when you turn the blade by hand, it always returns to the same place where the belts want it to go. I never thought this was an issue as I had good cuts with my full...
